MELT Delivery Solutions

The optimal designed part relies on the melt delivery system feeding it. The DME modular hot runner systems create uniform melt conditions to each gate to allow for pressure limitations, minimizing shear, and excellent cavity packing. The net result is a perfect plastic part produced with reliability and high efficiency.

Melt Delivery Solutions

The quality of a molded plastic part is directly related to the way the mold cavity is filled. A well designed hot runner system builds on the upfront analysis of the part design to determine, the type, number and location of the gate(s). The pressure, temperature and velocity with which a hot runner system delivers the resin into the cavity will produce optimum part quality. The part relies on the melt delivery system feeding it. A superior designed melt delivery system creates uniform melt conditions to each gate to allow for pressure limitations, minimizing shear, and providing for cavity packing. The net result is the perfect product produced with reliability and high efficiency

Your Melt Delivery Partner

As a world leader in melt delivery we work with you through the entire process.

From understanding the intended application, the resin selected and the process of manufacturing we help you to determine the right system for requirements.
We guide you as to the use of a cold sprue or hot drop. Help you to determine the best gate type and location. Ensure that accurate temperature control along with the melt delivery path are deployed and managed through the necessary hot runner controllers. We help guide the control of the valve gate timing in relation to the injection sequence.

Mold Technologies Package Solution

The DME Melt Systems fit right into the complete package solutions offered by DME. Analysis, Hot Runner, Cooling, Mold Bases & Components, Temperature Control and Industrial Supplies.

From start to finish, top to bottom… it can all be included.

Thermal Management Solutions

The Problem: Resin delivery is a precision process that often suffers due to inadequate cooling. As resin enters the mold cavity through the gate region, residual heat builds up negatively affecting the mold performance and part quality. Gate blemish such as splay or blush and even warpage often result from this excessive heat buildup at the melt entry point.

The Solution: DME has developed a low cost gate bushing which provides superior control of the nozzle tip. Regardless if it’s a bodiless, full body or even valve gate, DME’s TruCool gate bushing series can be designed into your tool before problems arise. Overcome thermal control before it becomes a concern.

DME Cooled Gate Bushing is an exciting new product designed to maximize your cooling performance. It is a standard product available off the shelf and can be incorporated into your initial mold design.

It’s universal fit is compatible with the today’s hot runner systems by the industry’s leading manufacturers. Customization is also possible for your preferred gating requirement. A simple installation is possible by allowing the face of the bushing to be exposed. Minimal milling will further allow a seamless solution for high profile applications.

The DME Cooled Gate Bushing has also been designed for optimal performance. Multiple options for water delivery have been designed into the product. You can choose a fixed piping into the top or sides of the bushing or, alternatively, an O-ring connection on the underside of the top flange is available.

By adding DME’s Cooled Gate Bushing, you can see molding benefits such as: 

  • Reduce cycle time
  • Eliminate gate blush or splay
  • Lower sheer
  • Prolong valve gate pin and gate
  • Improve part quality
  • Minimize scrap/waste

Lifecycle Value Solution

DME Melt Solutions are part of the DME complete lifecycle products and services package.

Your Melt Delivery Partner

As a world leader in melt delivery we work with you through the entire process.
From understanding the intended application, the resin selected and the process of manufacturing we help you to determine the right system for requirements.

We guide you as to the use of the proper hot sprue bushing or a multi-cavity hot drop system. Help you to determine the best gate type and location, and assist with the best part layout within the mold for optimum flow and balance.

Provide recommendation on the optimal thermocouple sensing locations to ensure accurate temperature control along the melt delivery path using the hot runner temperature controllers.

We help guide the control of the valve gate timing in relation to the injection sequence with the use of dedicated pneumatic or hydraulic control systems, that integrate seamlessly with your DME hot runner valve gate systems.

 

From pellet to finished molded part, DME provides the assistance you need.
